I wish Stetson had sent me a nice Valentine like that... :-*

That was my first acceptance letter.  My fiancee was very adamant that was where she wanted us to go, so I didn't tell her until I saw her that night.  I folded up the letter and put it into her V-day card.  She was shocked and started crying. We had both visited about and fell in love with the area and the school.  I am really happy to be attending there.

A real good friend of mine is a JAG officer and I have known many from my time.  They come from all kinds of schools.  The CPT who did my will went to Harvard while my buddy went to Williamette.  When I was hanging out in his office, they had some summer interns from schools of all types (Duke, Campbell, UScar., etc.)

Most of the guys I knew were ROTC during undergrad and not all were top of their classes.  There are a lot of intangibles that made up the selection, among them being able to show the character necessary to be an officer.

Guys suck no matter where you go - it's not a regional thing...  ;D

LOL....that is what my fiancee says.  She said I am the first one she found that she can tolerate.

:D true, my sister says there is a serious lack of cute guys down here.  I live with my SO but I tend to agree :)

Well, have no fear, I will be attending this fall and I don't put gel in my hair.  Unfortunately, I am getting married this July to a wonderful girl.

Incoming 1Ls / Housing at Stetson

Does anyone here know anything about good apartments near Stetson or about the houses the school has for rent?

I looked at about 15 apartments when I was there and really liked Emerald Bay in St. Pete.  The school's houses looked crappy from the outside, but the tour guide told us that they were pretty nice on the inside.  I am coming down there with my little dog, wife, and 9 year old, so I can't go to somewhere unsafe.

Just trying to get some personal knowledge, TIA.

Accepted 3.84/154.

I live in York (30 min. away)and have visited.  If you like a small town atmosphere, then Carlisle will be a nice place.  I really liked the campus.  It is immediately next door to Dickinson College (not affiliated, but same name, go figure). Dickinson also has a good reputation in Central PA.  Carlisle has a summer fairground series where they bring in classic cars, motorcycles, antiques, and all kinds of other stuff.

I am not going to attend here for two large reasons. $$ from them.  Two....I have lived here for wayyy too long and the sun of Florida sounds nice in my life about now.  Other than that, I was impressed with their staff when I went to the open house and the couple of faculty I talked to were extremely approachable and nice.

i have a toshiba and have had nothing but problems with it. it's only 6 months old. it overheats and shuts down frequently when i'm working and as a result, i've lost documents which cannot be recovered. this would be a big problem if you were in class taking notes. the mouse works when it feels like it. and a lot of times it refuses to recognize that it's plugged into the wall and runs off the battery instead. save yourself the time and trouble...don't buy a toshiba. the only good thing i can say is that at least they'll take it back and try to fix it, and if they can't they'll replace it.

I solved my overheating problem with my Toshiba by blowing it out with compressed air once in a blue moon, but yeah, I was surprised at that problem.  I am also very tough on laptops.  I had the same problem with the power cord once in a while too.  Both problems were relatively minor for me, but for others, they may be a big deal.

The VAIO is wayyyyyy overpriced.  I did one of those Internet offers for a free laptop that actually wasn't a scam and got mine for free or else I couldn't have justified the money.
